I love Summer aka GRILLING SEASON for so many reasons. I love how the amazing smells fill the air, love how easy it is to cook for a crowd, and REALLY love that Pat does most of the grilling! I can just sit back, relax, drink some Strawberry Margarita Punch, and enjoy the show. I may be the one with a cooking blog, but Pat is the grill master. I’m a lucky lady! Our favorite quick and easy Summer dinner (that wows EVERY time) are Stuffed Caprese Chicken Sandwiches! We both are slightly obsessed with caprese flavors (I’ve made everything from White Chicken Caprese Lasagna to Peach Caprese Stacks!), and putting it all into an amazing chicken sandwich is right up our alley! Favorite Summer Grilling recipe ever! (Be sure to check out our other favorite Easy Caprese Recipe!)

Grilling a Stuffed Caprese Chicken Sandwich for us always requires two must-haves; Cobblestone Bread Co.™ and our Big Green Egg®! If you’re grilling without either one, you are grilling all wrong! There is no better bun, perfect for Summer, than Cobblestone Bread Co.™. Their buns are always fresh, taste homemade, and full of flavor. With so many options (we love the Sesame Twist, Corn Dusted Kaiser, and Toasted Onion the best for these sandwiches!) you can’t go wrong. Pop them on the Big Green Egg® (with some LEMON BUTTER ASPARAGUS!) to get them nice and toasty and you’re REALLY in business. Obsessed isn’t a strong enough word for how I feel about mine. It’s super hot in minutes, so versatile (grill or smoke meats, you can do it ALL on the BGE!) and nothing beats that charcoal flavor. It’s not Summer unless you can taste that smoke!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
  • 4 large slices tomato
  • 8 small slices fresh whole milk mozzarella
  • 8 large leaves fresh basil
  • 4 Cobblestone Bread Co.™ hamburger buns (we used the Sesame Twist…yum!)

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the vinegar and honey over medium/high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, stirring regularly. When it starts to thicken and has reduced by about half (approximately 10 minutes), remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Season each chicken breast with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Cut each breast lengthwise, but not all the way, forming a “pita” shape. This is where you will place the mozzarella, basil, and tomato later.
  3. Place the chicken in two large ziplock bags and pour some of the balsamic reduction into each bag, reserving a small amount for garnish. Allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
  4. When ready to grill, spray your cooking grid with non-stick spray or brush with canola oil. Stuff each chicken with one slice tomato, 2 leaves basil, and 2 slices fresh mozzarella. Use a toothpick to seal the opening if desired, this will make flipping the chicken easier.
  5. Grill the chicken over medium/high heat, approximately 450 degrees, for 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken is cooked through. This will determine on the thickness of the chicken you picked. When the chicken is white throughout, it’s done!
  6. Place chicken onto the bottom bun and drizzle with a bit more of the reserved balsamic reduction. Top with the top part of the bun.
  7. Enjoy!

seriously though.... LOVE this idea!

Hey Becky, that is probably the best way of cooking them, I do not know why you need to boil the vinegar but I can say it works wonders for the chicken. I did it with pineapple slices and a hot chipotle guacamole on top but that is just personal preference.

Looks good. Will try it

Sorry, Becky but your website is so busy and loaded down with advertising that I always get an error and are reloading the page so I am unsubscribing. I can't seem to get to any recipe because of the error and reloading page.

I think I could probably eat this for dessert! I have never eaten sweet potatoes like this although I have done a similar thing with carrots and loved it.
